So here's what you do.
1.Pull the frig away from the wall.
2.At the back of the frig toward the bottom there is a small plastic shaft sticking out by it self or a small hole about 3/8 - 1/2 of an inch wide with a slot at the end of the shaft that a screw driver will turn.
3. Turn that control a full turn or so.
4. If it starts working again. Great!
5. If it does the same thing again the next day or so.
6. Replace the defrost timer. Almost any brand will do and they are cheap.
Warning: If you do need to replace the defrost timer, make sure you unplug the frig first.
This is a very common problem, especially in high humidity areas. Basically it is just a 24 hour timer/clock and the small motor in it sticks.

Appreciate the input and will report if it works on a Korean ?? manufactured Daewood brand distributed and sold in Mexico.
Reassuring to know it's probably an easy problem to fix and a common one in the tropics.
